520 8 |a Sanctuaries were at the heart of Greek religious, social, political, and cultural life; however, we have limited understanding of how sanctuary spaces, politics, and rituals intersected in the Greek cities of the Hellenistic and Republican periods. The focus of this book is on the archaeology of sanctuaries between 300 and 30 BC and how material culture can elucidate the complex relationship between physical space, various intervening forces (kings, federations, foreign powers), and ritual practices in the world of the 'old polis'. How did political choices and decisions influence the functioning and layout of sanctuaries? Which religious and cultural changes unrecorded in surviving local or political histories are preserved in the archaeology of cult-places? From art-historical approaches to surveys, fieldwork, and re-evaluation of archival material this volume provides some answers, but also leads to broader questions about the differences between the world of the old, traditional poleis and that of the new, expanded Hellenistic world outside and away from the traditional centres of Greek culture.
